Microwave Furnace

Located in the High Temperature laboratory, microwave furnace is designed to work up to a maximum temperature of 1500oC. It has insulation zone constructed with Zircar SALI grade high alumina capable of surviving fast rate of heating and thermal shock heating cycles. Four magnetrons, each of 1100watts capacity is used for producing microwaves and suitable dielectric SiC susceptor cavity is used for concentrated heating. An optical pyrosensor is used for measuring surface temperature. Eurotherm 2416 controller makes this furnace versatile for wide variety of temperature profile designing and optimizing microwave synthesized oxide powers. ​
